There is some evidence that CBD interacts with seizure medications such as Onfi (clobazam) and boosts their concentration in the blood. Further research is needed.
Meredith Bull, ND, is a licensed naturopathic doctor with a private practice in Los Angeles, California.
CBD oil can interact with certain medications, including some drugs used to treat epilepsy. CBD inhibits an enzyme called cytochrome P450 (CYP450), which metabolizes certain drugs. By interfering with CYP450, CBD may either increase the toxicity or decrease the effectiveness of these drugs.
Possible Side Effects
Proponents claim that CBD oil can treat a wide variety of health problems, including:
CBD oil is an extract of Cannabis indica or Cannabis sativa—the same plants that, when dried, make marijuana. CBD oil is believed by some to treat pain, reduce anxiety, and stimulate appetite in the same way that marijuana does, but without its psychoactive effects. CBD has also shown promise in treating certain types of seizures.
Medical marijuana is frequently prescribed to people with intractable (treatment-resistant) pain, including those with terminal cancer. There is some evidence that CBD contributes to this benefit.
Clinical research has shown that CBD oil can trigger side effects. Severity and type can vary from one person to the next.
Whole hemp seeds contain 20% soluble and 80% insoluble fiber. The fiber in hemp seeds may help digestion. It may also help lower bad cholesterol and improve heart health. The insoluble fiber in hemp seeds has also been linked to a lower risk of diabetes.
Hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil. Hemp oil comes from the seed of the hemp plant. It can be used for cooking or as a hair conditioner or skin moisturizer.
Hemp Oil Vs. CBD Oil
Hemp is also known to slow the heart rate. Taking hemp with cardiac glycosides could slow the heart rate too much. Ask your doctor before taking hemp with Lanoxin.
Cooking hemp seeds or heating the oil to temperatures above 350 degrees F can destroy the healthy fatty acids. Hemp seeds and oil are best eaten raw. If cooking with hemp oil, use low heat.
Regulations on hemp grown in U.S., Europe, and Canada are stricter than in other countries, such as China.
Nobody needs to tell you that life today is stressful. As one Hemp Oil + user put it, “We are probably overwhelming our bodies with far more stress than we were designed to take on as humans.” Well put. What Hemp Oil + does is reinforce and enhance the body’s natural ability to manage stress.*
And by adding compounds from other synergistic plants like black pepper, cloves, hops and rosemary – Hemp Oil + affects more receptors in more ways.
How Will Taking a Hemp Oil Supplement Make You Feel?
“Hemp has many of the benefits of marijuana without its psychoactive downside.”
Thorne’s Hemp Oil + is safe to use, and its use is completely legal in all 50 states. The THC level in Hemp Oil + is very minimal, so you won’t have to worry about testing positive for using marijuana.
“It’s safe and it’s legal. And it works.”
